Press Release Summary:
IBM 6400 Printers operate at speeds up to 500, 1,000, 1,500, and 2,000 lpm, depending on model, and deliver data processing quality at up to 1,800 lpm. Pedestal design maximizes forms access and minimizes required floor space. Models with enclosed cabinets provide quieter acoustic levels than many laser printers. Proactive, real-time alert messaging helps ensure operators are immediately aware of printer status. Optional 10/100BaseT Ethernet card is available.
Original Press Release:
IBM 6400 Line Matrix Printer Family
Meet demands for efficiency and manageability
Adapt to rapidly changing business environments with the reliable, efficient and easily manageable IBM 6400. State-of-the-art print engine and controller technology help you keep up with the demands of back office and/or data processing applications. User-friendly controls help minimize user intervention. Streamlined paper handling helps you avoid paper waste.
o Print up to 2000 lines per minute, depending on the model, and deliver data processing quality at up to 1800 lines per minute
o Maximize forms access and minimize required floor space with pedestal design, or run more quietly than many laser printers with the enclosed cabinet design
o Provide proactive, real-time alert messaging to help ensure operators are immediately aware of printer status.
Optional 10/100BaseT Ethernet card and IBM Printer Management Utility.
Simple, reliable paper path.
Optional ANSI 3.64.
Simplify operation and maximize uptime with automatic e-mail notification of printer messages to operators, real-time printer status and the capability of downloading custom configurations to multiple printers.
Streamline paper handling, forms loading and paper alignment to minimize user frustration and paper waste.
Take advantage of more powerful, cost-effective technology by migrating legacy, non-IBM printers to the 6400.
o Offers high-quality line matrix printing at speeds up to 500, 1000, 1500 and 2000 lines per minute (lpm), depending on the model
o Pedestal design maximizes forms access and minimizes floor space requirements
o Provides proactive alert messaging
o DP quality printing at up to 1800 lpm
Today's rapidly changing business environment requires reliable printing solutions that meet the increasing demands for efficiency and manageability associated with high-volume industrial printing applications. The IBM 6400 family is a feature-rich, versatile suite of impact printers that are available in two configurations- open pedestal or enclosed cabinet. The open pedestal design minimizes floor space requirements and maximizes access to forms. Models with enclosed cabinets provide acoustic levels that are quieter than many laser printers.
Proactive printer monitoring
Included with the optional 10/100BaseT-Ethernet card is the IBM Printer Management Utility (PMU). Capabilities include automatic e-mail notification of printer messages to appropriate operators as well as real-time printer status. Featuring an intelligent ribbon system, the 6400 can automatically alert users when a new supply is needed, helping to ensure print quality and increase efficiency. Additionally, PMU enables print operators to download settings to multiple printers and remotely access the full functionality of the operator panel via a virtual "op" panel.
The 6400-i20 Line Matrix Printer provides data processing (DP) print speeds of up to 1800 lpm, specifically targeting high-volume printing environments where high-speed band printer equipment may be installed. Although many variables need to be considered when replacing band printer equipment--such as print speed, attachment and print density- Model 6400-i20 offers potentially far more in terms of flexibility, efficiency and manageability.
The IBM 6400 family streamlines paper handling with a simple, reliable paper path. This design, a long with the view function, helps make forms loading and alignment fast and efficient.
